Central government financing requirement for 2021


The Economic Survey, August 2021, will be published August 30.

The estimates of the central government net financing and financing requirement for 2021 can be found in table 1 below. The financing requirement has been revised to DKK 296 bn., which is a decrease of approximatively DKK 11 bn. compared to the estimate in The Economic Survey, May 2021. The decrease is primarily due to a higher expected tax revenue for 2021. The estimate of the central government financing requirement for 2022 is DKK 195 bn.

The financing requirement is met by debt issuance or by drawing on the central governments account at Danmarks Nationalbank.

The financing strategy is published by Danmarks Nationalbank on the website of the government debt management office
